Fall 2017 Accessory Preview: Knomo London Smart Bags and Tech Accessories

There are many cool, innovative, and fashionable cases for your smartphones but when it comes to your bags and cases for your laptops, the selection isn’t as impressive. Knomo London is changing that with their very stylish offering of smart bags and tech accessories. We had the opportunity to check out the British accessory brand’s Fall 2017 collection of stylish, high-quality bags and accessories; a collection which brings classic elegance together with bold new colors and designs, offering maximum utility and digital convenience features.

Personally, we’re bored of the basic black nylon laptop bags and welcome some fun with our function, in the form of bold colors and prints such as hot reds and formal grays, and of course, luxury materials. The Knomo London Fall 2017 Collection has design options for both men and women, with styles that challenge traditional gender roles with a slightly androgynous look.

Geared towards the traveling “Digital Knomad,” each Knomo London bag from Fall 2017 collection offers modern style, simplicity, and utility. Style-conscious users, sophisticated city dwellers, and globetrotting backpackers will have everything they need to stay organized and prepared. Thanks to the addition of more organizational compartments and pockets, you’ll be able to keep all your mobile devices secure, charged and organized.

The specially designed pockets on the Knomo London bags not only organizes your belongings, it protects your tech devices thanks to its RFID blocking feature to safeguard your digital information, the uniquely valuable Knomo ID, so you can register your bag and if it’s lost, the founder, Howard Harrison, can return it to you through Knomo’s portal.

We’re really excited about Knomo London’s collaboration with the world-renowned Victoria & Albert Museum in London. The graphic collection uses an original 1920’s print from the Museum’ s archives. The unique 5-piece collection of accessories comprises 3 bag styles: a Totepack, a Backpack, and a Briefcase, along with a Carry-all Pouch, and a Foldable Shopper. Each design is available in two colors, Night Forest, which boast tones of blue and green described by some as an “abstract camo” print, and Monochrome, shades of white, gray and black.

Inside each of the Knomo London x Victoria & Albert Museum collection bags, there are a number of organizational pockets and compartments, ready to hold all travel essentials such as your passport, Knomo portable battery, and Knomo travel adaptor, your laptop or tablet, and other belongings.

Both the regular and Knomo London x Victoria & Albert Museum collections are available in the UK, Europe and USA stores in August 2017.

Solo Bags: The Perfect Bags for the Woman-on-the-Go

We’re all about cool bags over here, so of course, we’re always on the lookout for great new brands. We didn’t have to go too far for our next bag discovery. If you haven’t heard of the NYC-based Solo Bags, we’re more than excited to introduce them to you. Solo Bags is one of the largest, and fastest-growing lifestyle and fashion accessories brands. They make trendy bags, purses, urban totes, attache cases, backpacks, briefcases, laptop, and tablet cases for men and women, the kind you see reviewed on articles like https://planettravelerusa.com/best-attache-cases-for-men/.

What we’re really excited about are their options for the larger laptops. We own a 17″ HP Laptop and finding fashionable laptop bags has been quite difficult, hell, finding any bag that fits our laptop has difficult. Thankfully Solo Bags has several stylish options for those who are looking for anything over 15 inches.

The above bags are the effortlessly stylish, Bridgehampton Backpack, from Solo’s new Hamptons Collection. A collection that highlights a fresh take on heritage tailoring, rich textures, and thoughtful details; and the Frequency Briefcase, from the Gravity Collection, a futuristic collection that fuses aerodynamic design with space tech-inspired mesh-foam for a fearless style. We love the classic look of a briefcase, and messenger styled bag for our laptop, and immediately fell for the Solo Chrysler Briefcase, Empire Briefcase, Elite Slim Brief, and Active 17.3″ Messenger. All four laptop bags boasts a fully padded 17.3″ laptop compartment, with each featuring their own special details and essential compartments.

We love the Chrysler Briefcase for its full-sized front zip-down organizer section with key clip, divided file compartment, removable/adjustable shoulder strap, and the back strap slides for easy placement over luggage handles. The Empire Briefcase also features a Clamshell CheckFast™ design that allows you to pass through airport security faster, a quick access pocket, a full-length front zippered pocket, a full-size front zip-down organizer section, file compartment, padded carry handles, an adjustable shoulder strap, and the back strap slides for your luggage. The Elite Slim Brief features a scratch resistant liner, full-length front zippered pocket, zippered side entry, and a fold-flat carry handle. The Active 17.3″ Messenger, the sportier style out of these four, features a full-size interior organizer section, a padded carry handle, removable/adjustable shoulder strap, speed buckle closure, back pocket slides for your luggage handle, and a rear pocket.

Another great option is the Impulse Duffel from Solo Bags’ Urban Code Collection. Like the other mentioned above, it also features a fully padded 17.3″ laptop compartment, back strap slides over luggage handle, large capacity main compartment, removable/adjustable shoulder strap, as well as an internal iPad/tablet pocket, and the Solo Bags logo written in Morse code as a tribute to digital pioneers, all in cool shades of gray color palette.

Whether you’re looking for a backpack, briefcase, messenger, tote, or sleeve for your laptop, with a Solo Bag, you’ll do so stylishly. Could your laptop or tablet use a ne stylish home? What are your thoughts on the bag options from Solo Bags?

I’m not one for typical cases, my camera and laptop bags are bright pink and my cellphone cases are most certainly always colored, textured, bejeweled and/or printed. Let’s face it, most laptop bags are basic and boring and while we have seen a turn to the more vibrant ipad and mobile cases for women, they tend to be very expensive and not really over a carrying solution, just decoration.
